Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s most embarrassing moments
Known as TV’s favorite platonic couple, they’ve helmed ITV’s flagship morning show since 2009 and Dancing on Ice since 2006 with their signature giggly chemistry. When headlines last week about a dispute between Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield hit the front page, the public went berserk.
“Furious Phil Calls Lawyers,” read one headline. “Is this the end for Holly and Phil?” Wrote another one.” Other releases have focused on reports that they “barely speak off-camera” and that they are in “crisis talks” about the future of the show.
The news triggered a tsunami of detectives, who scoured the internet for possible leads to their feud. Many pointed out that Willoughby removed Schofield from their social media accounts. Her Twitter bio once said, “I was brought to my attention by a Twitter legend @PhilipSchofield,” but now it says, “Sender, Founder of Wyldemoon, Brand Ambassador for Marks & Spencer and Garnier, Author of Reflections,” while others analyzed what her conspicuous absence from Sunday night’s TV BAFTAs could mean.
According to inside sources, things first deteriorated after public confrontations erupted last September over the pair skipping the line for the Queen’s coffin. Then last month, Schofield’s brother Tim was convicted of 11 child sex offenses, with Schofield allegedly keeping Willoughby in the dark – a move that reportedly ruined the relationship.
Although neither party has commented on the allegations, the biggest blow came last Thursday when the rumors were seemingly confirmed by Schofield when he made a shocking statement to The Sun declaring: “Holly is my rock.” , but “the last few weeks have been paradise.” “It hasn’t been easy for any of us.” Neither the studio nor his co-host got a nod to his comments, and both are reportedly extremely upset that Schofield is still the fuss has fueled.
Yesterday morning, the co-hosts returned to the air for the first time since Schofield’s casual remarks, with fans desperate to decipher the host’s body language to find clues as to their current friendship status. Throughout the show, there was no mention of the apparent fallout, and the pair discussed all of the current headlines — from Eurovision to The Little Mermaid — except their own.
The next day, the second since Schofield’s controversial statement, astrologer Hagan Fox told the couple that “a tricky sentence is coming to an end” and asked, “Is now the right time for a change?” – and plenty of social media Users shudder at the seemingly made-up scene.
A source told the Mirror last week: “This Morning’s relationship with viewers is based on trust and they have to believe that the friendship between Holly and Phil and what they are watching is real… If viewers look no further now believe the pair.” and make your views clear next week, make no mistake ITV will act.” Many are now wondering if the screen duo’s days are numbered.
As the pressure mounts on Willoughby and Schofield, here’s a look back at their most iconic moments over the past 14 years…
1. But your daughter’s name is India!
Although they are known for being extremely friendly and smiling personalities, they sometimes get spiteful – much to the public’s approval. When the notoriously obnoxious Katie Hopkins declared that she hated names inspired by geographic location, Schofield immediately quipped, “But your daughter’s name is India!”. Obsessed.
2. Going through a night after her NTA win
We drank a little too much on a school night — but not all of us need to be fired up after partying into the wee hours. After securing an NTA win in 2016, the two walked off the club onto the couch and showed up for work in last night’s clothes and still half drunk.
3. Your pandemic-proof hug
During the pandemic, “This Morning” became a comfort to many, as the daytime program was still airing while most of the world was shut down. After months of no contact, viewers were moved to tears when they were given a corona-proof hug thanks to a hilarious “snuggle curtain”.
4. NSFW Children’s Drawings
It’s one of the show’s most popular segments, and it’s easy to see why. Epitomizing Willoughby and Schofield’s goofy humor that is at the heart of the show, the hosts invite parents to accidentally submit NSFW drawings their children inadvertently made – much to the amusement (and subsequent debilitating giggle) of Willhouby and Schofield.
5. If my grandmother had wheels, she would have been a bicycle
Although it turns out that “if my grandmother had wheels, she would have been a bicycle” is a classic Italian sarcastic expression, the world never quite settled when TV chef Gino D’Acampo denounced it on This Morning over nine years ago today’s iconic saying dropped recovered.
6. Getting the giggles
Perhaps her most famous stumbling block during her 14-year tenure at This Morning is her inability to keep a straight face. Actually, you cross that out. Your inability to keep a serious corner of your face, body and mouth – and the two would regularly collapse on the floor, giggling.
7. The makeover went wrong
In 2019, Willoughby was duped by the studio when an actress pretended to hate her makeover on live TV. “You’ve got a whole wardrobe and people are pushing you out of your comfort zone, it all goes a bit fast… Please don’t worry,” she teased before taking her out to lunch – only to find the car had crashed. When she was finally put out of her misery, the poor presenter burst into tears of relief while Schofield continued to laugh.
